Genagon Therapeutics

Genagon Therapeutics’s drug development is based on discoveries of unstudied proteins and their life cycles in innate immune cells.

The tumor microenvironment is a complex structure of cancer cells recruiting innate immune cells to protect the tumor and promote its growth. Disrupting this interplay is a potent tool for cancer therapies. Genagon pioneered a way to target macrophages and cancer cells and by disturbing the dynamic lifecycle of proteins within the tumor microenvironment. Targeting harmful tumor-associated macrophages directly paves the way for novel ways to target and eradicate tumors.
